IceManIsaac Claims Rifle Loadout is Better Than RPK Meta in Warzone 2

IceManIsaac/Activision

Warzone 2 player IceManIsaac has identified a rifle loadout that's better than the current meta RPK.

Rifles are the go-to weapon on Al Mazrah, and the RPK specifically dominates the pick rate more than most other guns. Thanks to a large magazine, devastating power and its effectiveness at long range, it's no surprise that it's the top choice.

But not everyone subscribes to its popularity. IceManIsaac, for instance, thinks there's something much better available.

IceManIsaac Reveals TAQ-V Battle Rifle Loadout

According to IceManIsaac, the TAQ-V Battle Rifle is that little bit better, largely thanks to its faster reload speed. Additionally, its recoil is easier to control, making those hits land that more accurately. Here's what the streamer uses in his loadout:

  • Ammunition: 7.62 High Velocity
  • Muzzle: Bore-490
  • Underbarrel: Commando Foregrip
  • Optic: Aim OP-V4
  • Magazine: 50-Round Drum

According to IceManIsaac, the TAQ-V has a faster TTK compared to the RPK and is far more effective for headshots. The downside is that the TAQ-V has a smaller magazine size, sitting at 50 compared to the RPK's 70. Players will find themselves reloading more often, but ideally landing far more hits with the TAQ-V.
